The Stutz Motorcar Company manufactured automobiles from 1911 to 1935. This 1932 model is designated a boattail speedster because the curvaceous rear body design is reminiscent of a sleek speedboat.

This car features two front driving lights that turn with the front wheels. The engine is a straight 8 with four valves per cylinder (2 intake & 2 exhaust) and hemispherical (Hemi head) combustion chambers.

With a factory guaranteed 100+ mph top speed, this sporty automobile was coveted by many Hollywood playboys.
